Roger Youderian

Roger Youderian

  (Missionary martyr in Equador, 1950’s.)

Roger Youderian was one of five American missionaries who were killed by Auca Indians in the Ecuadorian jungle, 1956. This Reader’s Theatre was written from conversations the writer had around Barbara Youderian’s kitchen table. Roger Youderian, Jim Elliot, Pete Fleming, Ed McCully, and Nate Saint, may your story never die….may we of the next generations live with equal passion for our God’s glory.
“Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation…” Revelations 5:9 ESV
